Part of the Hilton Hotel in Surfers Paradise, FIX Bar is one of the best places to enjoy a cocktail on the Gold Coast.
The atmosphere is pretty relaxed, and FIX manages to be swish and refined without being snobby.
The decor is wonderful, influenced by the 1930s, and gives the bar an aura of sophistication. While there is a wide selection of drinks on offer, it’s the cocktails that it has become most famous for.
The highly-skilled staff can whip you up something from the impressively extensive cocktail menu in a flash. There are all the classics, as well as some interesting contemporary offerings.
It’s fun watching the staff conjure up your drink, and some of the more unusual ones are served in interesting ways: the British Summer Garden Martini comes in a smoking watering can on a piece of turf, and the Adult Chemistry comes with it’s own ‘do it yourself’ chemistry kit!
With almost all of them under $20 (as of January 2014), they are surprisingly good value.
Of course, there is beer, wine and spirits available too if that’s what you feel like. There’s also some bar food, with vegetarian and gluten-free options.
DJs provide the music in the evening that is in keeping with the laid-back atmosphere.
The perfect place to enjoy a cocktail or two in stylish surroundings, and it won’t break the bank either. Open seven days a week. Dress smartly.
FIX Bar is located on level one of Hilton at 6 Orchid Avenue in Surfers Paradise. Telephone (07) 5680 8121
